Companies can benefit greatly from developing their own unique extrusion designs, as doing so can cut production costs, shorten product development periods, and improve quality. Working with Silver City Aluminum is a terrific method to get the results you want without wasting time and money if you are new to the idea of designing custom aluminum goods or if you are unclear of how to begin. Helping you place an order and create a custom design that lives up to your standards is a specialty of our highly skilled and experienced team of engineers, designers, and technicians. While we do offer a wide variety of stock shapes for customers looking to work with a generic extrusion die, our specialty is tailoring our services, profiles, and production to meet the specific needs of each individual customer.
Experienced Custom Aluminum Extruders
Having a reliable vendor like Silver City Aluminum to help you make unique aluminum goods is crucial. We have extensive experience working with aluminum alloys, designing extrusions, and developing profiles to enhance corrosion resistance, all of which can benefit you. For optimal performance, it’s important to keep in mind a few key design details. Among these factors is the setting in which the item will be utilized. All of our efforts are directed on the final product’s functionality in its intended setting. It’s important to select an aluminum alloy and tempering that can withstand the necessary temperatures, corrosion, and abrasion.
The how, where, and why of the product’s use will also inform the thickness of the walls formed in the aluminum extrusion profiles’ cross-section. Standard extrusion dies, whether for tubes, angles, squares, or other stock shapes, typically have uniformly sized walls to ensure consistent wall thickness during the extrusion process. However, having walls of varying thicknesses is sometimes necessary when designing a custom extrusion in order to achieve unique shapes and sizes for the benefit of the overall project. While thin sections may look appealing, it is important to know that they can result in higher prices and longer production times. To save both time and money, talk to our engineers about your design ideas as early as possible in the process.
One Stop Shop Fabrication, Design, and Extrusion
Even while the custom profile’s design is crucial to the project’s success, there are other services that may be employed to improve your custom extrusion’s overall appearance. In addition to designing and fabricating unique aluminum extrusion profiles, Silver City Aluminum also offers a wide variety of additional services. Here in Southeastern Massachusetts, at our fully equipped machine shop, we also provide secondary activities like fabrication. Our modern workshop is equipped to handle CNC milling, fabricating, and more. To make your custom aluminum goods even more long-lasting and resistant to corrosion, we also provide finishing techniques that can boost the material’s inherent anti-corrosion protection.
Silver City Aluminum offers expert painting on our Polycron line in addition to powder coating and anodizing as finishing services. We go above and beyond the norm in the industry to deliver paint that is applied at around 2mls wet thickness, guaranteeing good adhesion. Before being cured in one of our own custom ovens, all components are carefully inspected by hand to guarantee the highest quality and uniform color application from ceiling to floor. To provide our customers the range of colors and textures they seek, we collaborate with a number of powder coaters and anodizers. Request special anodizing colors in addition to the standard clear, black, and multi-color options.
